Congratulations are in order for Ed Sheeran and his “Perfect” love Cherry Seaborn, who have gotten engaged after almost three years of dating.
“Got myself a fiancée just before new year,” the 26-year-old singer wrote on Instagram Saturday, captioning a sweet photo of himself and Seaborn — who has inspired, among other things, Sheeran’s latest hit single. “We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx”
Sheeran and Seaborn, 24 — a risk advisory consultant — have known one another since high school and recently moved in together.
They began dating in the summer of 2015 after Sheeran’s BFF Taylor Swift invited Seaborn over for her famous Independence Day fête at her Rhode Island home.
“I’ve known Cherry since I was 11,” the “Shape of You” singer told PEOPLE in March. “She worked on Wall Street in New York, and I had like six shows [around New York in 2015]. It was around then, and we reconnected. I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor’s 4th of July party. I was texting [Seaborn], and she was like, ‘I’m in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,’ and I was like, ‘So am I.’ I kinda said to Taylor, ‘Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?’ The rest is history.” – says Ed.
